SELLER INSIGHT - When we first saw the property we were amazed by the square footage in such a great location. We are half a mile from the station and can be in London in under an hour by train. Admittedly, we completely renovated the house from top to bottom but we could see the potential. It gave us the opportunity to plan the house to include necessities like the laundry. The two sitting rooms, in addition to the open plan area, make it easy to entertain large groups. In the summer we have guests most weekends. We aren't overlooked, which is rare for a garden in the area and we love the views across the city. We are 10 minutes walk to the seafront, city centre or North Laines. The Seven Dials area, on your doorstep, has all you need for everyday life; shops, restaurants, and great pubs. The separate lower ground floor entrance makes a great boot room, useful for buggies or dogs after lovely walks in the South Downs National Park which is 10 minutes away by car.
IN MORE DETAIL -
A rich Farrow & Ball and Little Greene heritage colour scheme creates a beautiful backdrop to the easy flowing layout of this Seven Dials home, highlighting the fantastic attention to detail with which this renovated house has been finished.
GROUND FLOOR -
Instantly hinting at the sense of style and space that flows throughout each floor, the entrance hallway with its tall ceiling and eye-catching corbels opens onto a spacious main reception that offers plenty of space to relax and entertain. Beautifully lit by wide sash bay windows, a distinguished marble fireplace creates a traditional focal point while the deep plum walls and original wood floor add a rich contrast to the crisp white cornicing that wraps around the room. Creating delineated spaces, a wide archway leads into an inviting sitting room area with its own fireplace that looks out over the attractive rear garden.
The anaglypta patterns of the hallway lead you to a double bedroom that offers a wealth of versatility as a guest room, sitting room or study. Its neutral colour scheme lends a calm and peaceful feel, while modern French doors open onto a Juliet balcony offering views across the city.
A WC completes the ground floor.
GARDEN LEVEL -
Creating a contemporary yet sympathetic twist to this period home, the open plan garden level with its poured resin floor adds an instant wow factor that's hard to ignore. Complementing the main reception room with its bay windows, a large sitting room area offers bespoke built-in seating that provides plenty of discreet storage, while a classic wood burner sits within the wide chimney breast.
Engendering a highly sociable feel, this spacious floor features a sleek central kitchen area that combines rich marble countertops and a wealth of softly closing latte toned cabinets. Well-appointed with an array of integrated Bosch appliances and an under-mounted Franke sink; an eye-catching cylindrical extractor sits over the range gas hob of a large kitchen island that effortlessly delineates this impressive open plan space.
Adding to the sense of space, double doors open onto a large utility room that offers plenty of discreet space for laundry appliances within its tall grey cabinets and is well-equipped with a butler sink and spray tap. Natural light tumbles in from apex roof windows, and French doors open onto the large sandstone patio.
Continuing the flow of natural light, a formal dining room area completes this open plan floor providing a beautiful spot for family meals. Its French doors open once again onto the landscaped patio that leads down to the garden, making it easy to step outside and relax in the sun.
Perfect for those with dogs and offering plenty of space to store buggies, this garden level floor benefits from its own street entrance.
FIRST FLOOR -
Complementing the soft blue shades of the walls, a classic striped runner leads the way up the staircase to the first floor where three generously sized double bedrooms offer ideal family accommodation and plenty of dual space potential.
A sultry grey colour scheme lends a stylish backdrop to the master bedroom with its picture perfect fireplace and tall sash bay windows. White wood wardrobes nestle within the chimney breast alcoves, while a traditional column radiator lends a sympathetic finishing touch.
Equally well-presented, the period features continue in the adjacent double bedroom where a feature yellow striped wall adds a tasteful splash of colour, while a third bedroom looks out onto the attractive landscaped garden from its sash window.
Echoing the stylish contemporary design of the kitchen, the family bathroom is arranged in an elegant limestone tile setting. Featuring a large moulded basin that sits above a stylish dark grey cabinet; a Duravit suite features a full size bath complete with side taps, pull-out shower and overhead rain shower for a luxurious finishing touch.
The hallway offers access to a large loft with plenty of potential to be transformed into further living accommodation with double dormer windows (subject to the correct consents).

SELLER INSIGHT -
When we first saw the property we were amazed by the square footage in such a great location. Admittedly the house needed completely renovating but we could see the potential. We aren't overlooked, which is rare for a garden in this area and we love the views across the city. Before employing an architect we lived in the house unmodernised to work out the flow as a modern home.
The location could not be better, 10 minutes' walk from Brighton station and 10 minutes' walk to the seafront, city centre or North Laines. The Seven Dials area, on your doorstep, has all you need for everyday life; shops, restaurants, bakeries and great pubs.
The second sitting room, in addition to the open plan area, makes it easy to entertain large groups. In the summer we have guests most weekends. The separate lower ground floor entrance makes a great boot room, useful for buggies or dogs after lovely walks in the South Downs National Park which is 10 minutes away by car.
